Mother’s Wedding Dress Restoration Amazing

A Wedding Dress Story By Tracy Hulett After my mom passed we had to sell her house and found her wedding dress stuffed in a plastic bag in the original box. It smelled of ammonia. We knew that her mother, Bessie Ross Shriver had made the gown for her and so we wanted to preserve it. My mother had such a small waist when she was married that none of her daughters could fit into her wedding gown. We joke that one of her grandsons will have to marry a girl with a tiny waist. It’s such a beautiful gown we hope that someone down...

Wedding Gown Restyled for 25 year Anniversary

A Wedding Dress Story By Robin Svendsen This is the original wedding dress that I purchased back in 1993. I am the only one that has worn it. My sleeves were really puffy back in the 90’s which was the style, so I had them altered this year for my 25 year anniversary which I surprised my husband when I wore my dress again 25 years later down the aisle for a vow renewal. He got very emotional. Everything was original except for the sleeves. I purchased this dress in Chicago on a whim, I was on vacation and decided to peek in the bride...

Mother’s Wedding Dress Inspires Meredith

A Wedding Dress Story By Meredith Whittaker I am so grateful for an opportunity to talk about my Mom’s wedding gown. We were extremely close, and she passed suddenly from a heart attack in 2015. Planning my wedding without her was very emotional, and I tried to incorporate as much of her as I could into the day. My Mom’s name when she got married was Susan Rose Tranchetti (changed to Susan T. Wright upon marriage). She was only 22 when she got married to her high school sweetheart (my Dad). The gown was purchased at Vera Plumb...

Kathleen’s Daughter Will Wear Mom’s Wedding Dress

A Wedding Dress Story Kathleen and Kerry were married 34 years ago in Leavenworth, Kansas. It was typical at that time to have a newspaper article written to announce weddings. Also typical were bridal books which are scrapbooks of the wedding planning and wedding day. Fortunately, Kathleen DID write her wedding dress story in her bridal book, along with a sketch of her wedding dress. She also saved the newspaper article about her big day as well. 34 years later husband Kerry arranged wedding dress restoration by Heritage Garment Preservation...

I love the dress and hope you can help me restore it to it’s original...

Justin Alexander Gown Is Classic Elegance for Ilyse

A Wedding Dress Story By Ilyse Kornblau I first found out about the wedding dress designer, Justin Alexander through Facebook ads. The more I researched him, the more I wanted to wear one of his gowns. My style has always been classic elegance with a 1950-60’s theme. We originally found the dress that I eventually purchased several sizes larger at a bridal store and had written it off. At our next stop, my mom found the dress in my size on a mannequin. It fit like a glove on my petite body. After trying close to fifty dresses at four...
